IntroductionI.Attention GetterThere are 26 people in this classroom. According to the American Cancer Society, 1 of you will develop cancer at some point in your life (American Cancer Society, 2014).II.Audience Relevance LinkMost of the people in this room are 18 and older by now and we are now all adults. Being adults, we have to take responsibility with our lives and make sure we take careof our bodies.III.CredibilityWhen I was six years old, my dad was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. The doctor told him that he was already in stage 4 of this cancer and it is likely that he has had it for 10 years without even knowing it. My dad regretted everything from his past because he realized there were things that he could have done to change what is happening right in front of his eyes.IV.PropositionRegardless of what type of cancer you are checking for, everyone should get cancer test screenings.V.PreviewFirst, I am going to explain why these tests can save you money. Then, I am going to tell you how these tests could potentially prevent you from experiencing radiation andchemotherapy. Finally, I am going to explain how these tests can potentially save yourlife.Transition: A lot of you may be thinking that this is waste of money, especially if the results are all negative and there are no cancerous cells in your body. But, this is not necessarily true.BodyI.First Main Point: Getting these tests will save you money in the long run, potentially.a.Medical bills in general can get very expensive. A very common medical bill that people receive are those that help treat cancer patients.b.Participants generally agreed that they were worried with their financial status andthat their family had to help them with their financial burdens. Both of these findings were related to their cancer diagnoses (Stump et al., 2013).c.This goes to show that many people have problems when it comes to cancer treatment bills.d.There was a study done with a group of women of different age groups that were asked about their financial situation due to the tests that are now available to people.e.The older group of women had higher additional costs than the younger group of women (Lee et al., 2013).
f.The women in the older age groups did not have this technology until later in theirlives, and this shows that due to these tests, the younger women are saving more money than the older women.Transition: Along with these tests potentially preventing you from financial difficulties with medical bills, they can also potentially keep you from feeling sick all the time.II.Second Main Point: By you getting these tests, you can avoid the side effects from possible radiation and chemotherapy.a.When you are diagnosed with cancer, many people choose the option to receive either chemotherapy, radiation, or both. They do this to try to get rid of the cancerous tumor in them. Going through this therapy has side effects that get in the way of a person’s life.
